Internal AirPort card and AirPort base station not working
Has anyone gotten this combination working? Here's my setup, and a
description of my problems:
- IP address 192.168.1.1
* AirPort base station
- IP address 192.168.1.100
- transparent bridging, no encryption, gateway == router
- Internal AirPort card
- IP address 192.168.1.12, gateway == router
* 2.4.6 benh kernel, airport/orinoco/hermes modules
To get things "working" I use:
# modprobe airport
# ifup eth1
# iwconfig eth1 mode managed
So at this point it should be like my laptop is on the local area network,
right? And if I ping other machines on the network and check their ARP
caches, the laptop does show up.
I see activity lights on the base station when I try to ping other machines,
but I get 100% packet loss.
iwconfig eth1 shows link quality 57/92, signal level -41 dBm, noise
level -98 dBm. The base station is five feet away.
tcpdump on the target machine shows dozens of arp who-has and arp is-at
messages generated by the laptop and the target machine respectively, and
nothing else. The laptop's ARP cache shows <incomplete> for the ethernet
hardware address of the machine(s) I'm trying to ping.
What am I doing wrong?
